Greetings fellow permies. I recently purchased a few acres in Fallbrook, CA with about 2 acres of dead avocado grove. I have already removed most of the tree stumps and put in access roads. There are still a dozen avo trees plus several nice oak trees. Other than that, I have a ton of freshly bulldozed earth waiting to be filled with swales, terraces, hugelbeetes, etc.

I am feeling intimidated about starting, since shaping the land correctly is so important to get right the first time; I can't really do it over once I put trees in the ground. Can anyone recommend a permaculture design consultant in southern California? I have access to a bulldozer and other heavy euqipment to get the job done. I just want someone to come in and advise me on the earth shaping, plant guild design, integration with livestock, and water management. One important requirement is that I want to hire someone who can show me an example of at least two successful projects in my area.

Thanks for any leads you may be able to offer.

What did you end up doing? I would like to see your site. Sounds like it will be cool. Let me know.
 
Why should I lose weight? They make bigger overalls. And they sure don't make overalls for tiny ads:
